Early Voting for November 8 Election ends on Friday

(Houston, TX) -- The last day of Early Voting for the November 8 Election is Friday, November 4. Voters can choose to cast their ballot at any of the 99 early voting locations.

Early Voting Hours

  • Tuesday, November 1 – Wednesday, November 2: 7 a.m. – 7 p.m.
  • Thursday, November 3: 7 a.m. - 10 p.m.
  • Friday, November 4: 7 a.m. - 7 p.m.

To date, 451,527 ballots (44,167 by mail and 407,360 in-person) have been cast during the early voting period in Harris County. The highest turnout day was the first, with nearly 61K voting, and that number remained steady through the week, with a slow down this weekend. As far as peak times, we're seeing (as is typical) a spike in turnout during lunch hours followed by a second peak just as people are leaving work around 5-6 pm.

As a reminder, voters may cast their ballot at any polling location during both Early Voting and on Election Day. Election Day is Tuesday, November 8, 2022. Polling locations and wait times are available at HarrisVotes.com.

Harris County has 95 contests on the ballot, making it the longest in the United States. Los Angeles County comes in second with less than half that amount. All Harris County voters are eligible to vote on state-wide races, County Judge contest, and bonds. Some voters will have additional races on their ballots depending on where they live. It is also important for voters to note that they may see some different contests than what they have voted in previously because of redistricting and reprecincting.

Voters are encouraged to visit HarrisVotes.com and print a sample ballot which they can bring with them to the polls for reference. Any notes and printed materials brought to the polling locations must be taken by the voter when they leave.

Harris County residents voting by mail need to have their ballots in the mail with two forever stamps on the purple mail carrier envelope and postmarked by 7 p.m. on Election Day, November 8, and it must be delivered to our office by 5 p.m. on November 9. If delivering in-person, voters may only bring their ballot to NRG Arena, Hall D (1 NRG Parkway, Houston, Texas 77054) on November 8. The voter must be present with their ID to turn in their mail ballot. A white tent will be set up outside of NRG Arena, Hall D for the convenience of voters dropping off their mail ballot in-person.
